Signal Boost: Debugging Stories


Dan Luu's collection of debugging stories appeared on Hacker News the other day. It's a long list, so here are three of my favorites as curation:

  1. The case of the 500-mile email. A classic that makes me smile every time I read it.

  2. How I cut GTA Online loading times by 70%. The power of persistence and a bit of pluck.

  3. Crashes only on Wednesdays. A novice programmer makes a naive mistake and causes a very funny bug.
